The Query and View Designer is composed of four separate panes: the Diagram pane, the Criteria pane, the SQL pane, and the Results pane. Typically when you open a view or create a new query all four windows open, but if you need to open any of these windows, you can do so as long as the Query and View Designer is open.

To display Query and View Designer panes

  1. Open a view or create a new query to open the Query and View Designer.

  2. From the Query Designer menu, point to Pane and click the name of the pane you want to open.
